About the WorkshopMeetings are a large part of what we do as project managers. Decision making among project teams and stakeholders is a critical component of project management success. A facilitator is someone who acts as a neutral meeting manager to assist a group of people to achieve a goal. Facilitation can help establish a common understanding, solve a problem, or arrive at a mutually acceptable decision. This session will look at several facilitation techniques that project managers can add to their professional toolkits to run productive, purpose-driven meetings.
